Continuing my week-long theme of "things I tossed, but then had second thoughts about" (I know, catchy, right?), today's outfit features two items that I reclaimed.
Actually, only one. The other item came back to me from someone else.
- Dress - Sacony, vintage 60s, thrifted; last worn here in July 2018 for my once-annual wearing
- Shoes - Pearl Hart Bellevue, Fluevog; last seen way here back in August 2015!
- Jacket (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last worn here a couple of weeks ago
All of my friends tried this dress on during Saturday's clothing giveaway, and it didn't work on any of them. They talked me into it!
It's quite warm, even though it's sleeveless. The fabric is Ciella (it's on the label!) which is a "special acetate jersey that never sags, doesn't retain wrinkles and stays unwilted even in sweltering temperatures"!
here in July 2017 for $18.95 (good detail pictures of the label and the pattern there) and wore it 3 times. Basically once a year.
However, it's back in my closet.
Coated up for sun protection.
here in April 2012 - she had picked them up locally for $99.00 (a great price!) but had buyer's regret, so I bought them off her.
I wore them 15 times (just over $6.00 per wear), then in a fit of giveaway, passed them along to my dear friend Cat, who brought them to the swap/giveaway last Saturday. She didn't really wear them much, and thought I might want them back.
Aw, just seeing them again...I put them on, and they felt familiar and comfortable. Yes, they are going back into the closet. They were fabulous to wear today! Thank you, Cat!
